of two-phase flows (gas/particles and gas/liquid), ionizing radiations,

1988-1991 : Research work
National Center of Space Studies (CNES)
with the Thermal Physics Laboratory,
Associated Research Unit to the
French National Research Centre  (CNRS)
in the Physic and Chemistry Industrial Engineering School, Paris.
Experimental studies in collaboration with  :
- the European Company of Propulsion (SEP).
These studies have concerned cryotechnic two-phase flows (two-phase
instabilities) and ultra high frequencies waves : studies of instabilities in
the Ariane 4 launcher HM7B engine and application to the Ariane 5 launcher
Vulcain engine.

Consultant in Work Psychology since 2003
Work and management consulting, socio-organisational and human studies,
psychosociological analyses of work activities.
Within this framework and the one of the
LAboratory for Research in Sciences of ENergy since 2006 :
Studies on simulators for the control of complex systems
by restricted teams.

Member of LAboratory for Research in Sciences of ENergy -
Human sciences and Engineering,
since 2001.

Psycho-sociology : Study of the relationship between work clothes
and discrimination.
Work Psychology : Studies of the simulators for the control of nuclear engines,
airliners, medical acts.
Especially :
- analysis of the success factors for training sessions by simulation,
- study of the knowledge transfers from the simulated situation to the non-simulated
- study of stress in simulated situation (sources of stress, impact on the training,
induced behaviours and comparison with non-simulated situation),
- analysis of behaviour of event situations reproduced on simulators,
- development and adaptation of pedagogic steps on simulators.
